Products For Acne Prone Skin

The 6 Best Skincare Products for Acne Prone Skinned Millennials

Get Rid Of Those Annoying Zits With These Products


Acne. It affects tons of teens and young adults. But, we don't have to let it control us. Eating right, exercising, and using the right products on our skin can have a huge impact. These are just a few products I found to be absolutely amazing.

1. Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel

This stuff is like liquefied gold. It doesn't dry out your skin too much, and it keeps pesky pimples at bay. Witch hazel is a natural antiseptic, so use this morning and night on a cotton pad after washing your face and watch your skin revive itself.

2. Botanics Hydrating Day Cream Sunscreen

If you're on any acne medication, or use a topical medication like Tretinoin, then you skin is SUPER sensitive to the sun. I have tried five different morning moisturizers with sunscreen, and all of them were thick and poor-cloggy, except this guy. It smells like a sweet breeze blowing through your window and it is super light on your skin. Oo-la-la.

3. Derma-E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum

If you have acne, THIS IS A MUST. Use it after cleansing your skin at night with Witch Hazel and I promise you WILL see results. I just added this to my routine two weeks ago and have not had a pimple since. Coincidence? I think not. Hyaluronic acid plumps up your skin and retains moisture like a dream. Magical stuff.

4. Too Cool For School Egg Mellow Cream

When you use this guy, you don't even need an eye cream. Often times people try to dry their skin out so they don't get acne, but that is super wrong to do. Your skin actually produces MORE oil when it is dried out, so you get more acne. This moisturizer won't clog your pores, and the good-for-you ingredients will help your skin. The egg whites in it are actually super good for scarring!

5. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

Yeah yeah yeah. You might be rolling you eyes at this one. But, it's a cult favorite for a reason. If you got some pesky white heads or a random pimple popped up out of no where, this is what you should use. After you apply your last product for the night, take a cotton swab, dip it in, and then dot on your face. In two days the acne you applied it to will be g o n e.

6. Lush Charity Pot

This one is sort of a bonus, and it had to be mentioned. If you have acne, a dry elbow, a saggy neck, a car payment to be made, or anything else, this lotion can fix it. The ingredients are the best you'll ever find. and a tiny bit goes a long way.

All of these products, when used regularly and together, cleared my skin and made me a happier girl. I also use St. Ives scrubs with salicylic acid morning and night. A trick for buying these is using the 20% off coupon Ulta throws out every three or four months, or waiting until the brand is buy one get one half off at Ulta and stocking up. At Lush, you can get the mini size of the charity pot and it will still last a few months if you use it just on your neck and back like I do. In the end, if you're putting bad food and products on and in your body, your skin will be bad. But, some people just have bad acne in their genes, and that's okay too. Love your skin and do your best!

These Are 4 Proven Ways That Vaccines Cause Autism

Stock up on those essential oils.


Let's just start with the first (and main) point.

1. They don't.

Susan in your anti-vax group is not a scholarly source (despite her hours and hours of Google research).

2. But in case you still believe Susan...

Maybe you'll believe Autism Speaks who says, "Scientists have conducted extensive research over the last two decades to determine whether there is any link between childhood vaccinations and autism. The results of this research is clear: Vaccines do not cause autism."

3. And if Autism Speaks still didn't convince you...

Feel free to take a look at this comprehensive list of studies that all say that there is no relationship between vaccines such as the MMR vaccination and the development of autism.

4. But here's what you should know...

There have been a few studies lately that have shown that autism develops in utero aka before a baby is even born AND before a baby can even receive vaccinations.

Vaccinations have prevented COUNTLESS deaths and illnesses. Vaccination rates are continuing to fall and do you know what that means? Measles will make its way back. Whooping cough will come back. Rubella, mumps, and polio will come back and there will be no way to stop it.

So, now that you know that vaccines do not cause autism, you're welcome to go tell Susan from your anti-vax group that as well as tell her that the Earth isn't flat. But, don't forget to mention it to her that her essential oils and organic foods are not keeping her children safe from the measles or tuberculosis.

Vaccinate your children. And, besides, even IF vaccinations caused autism, wouldn't you rather have a child with a developmental disorder rather than a child who died from the measles?

Being Sick In College Is A Real Struggle

Being sick in college is definitely not as fun as having a sick day in middle school or high school.


Something that I have had to deal with multiple times these past two semesters is being sick while in school. It can be a real pain especially depending on what type of sickness it is. I have had tonsillitis, mono, and I'm pretty sure I also had the flu.

Being at school and away from home can make being sick worse because there is nobody to take of you such as your parents. Another thing is having to make the decision to get the rest that your body needs in order to feel better or staying on top of your assignments to avoid falling behind. My parents will always tell me to get a good night's sleep so my body can feel better the next day. However, sometimes I will feel more stress if my work isn't getting done and I feel like I'm falling behind and leaving things to get done in the last minute.

Currently, I am sick now and the past few days haven't been easy, but I still attended all my classes so I wouldn't miss any material or assignments that were given. I usually end up feeling the worst at night when trying to fall asleep, and by that time the doctors are not present at the student health center. Even though my health is important I usually don't like taking too much time out of my day to go to the health center to see a doctor. Some days I don't really have much free time before the evening.

I don't believe I have been over-exerting myself, but I don't want to just stay in my bed all day and sleep, even though that may be what is best for me. Most professors will be understanding if I email them and provide them a doctor's note as well, but I also just got back from a conference where I had to miss two days of classes next week.

I have been trying to keep hydrated so that way my body can fight the sickness. Also, I have been told if you stay hydrated you can flush the virus out of your body quicker.

Eating can also be a pain when you have a sore throat, for the past couple of days I have tried to have some soup in order to help. Most meals I would have to force myself to eat something of substance in order to give my body some type of energy in order to get through the day. It's also never fun not being able to breathe out of your nostrils. If it wasn't my nose being stuffed, then it would be constantly runny so there was no winning that battle.

Looking back, I probably should have done a bit more work over spring break in order to get ahead in the case that something like this would happen. I wanted my break to be exactly that, a break. After not being home for a few months I just wanted some time off to relax.
